Mark Zuckerberg is the World’s 5th Richest Person

Mark Zuckerberg has passed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to become the fifth richest person in the world, less than a week after he claimed the position of sixth wealthiest from Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison. Zuckerberg is worth $50 billion. This puts the 31-year-old CEO in close proximity to Carlos Slim, the Mexican business magnate who was the richest person in the world from 2010 to 2013. The position of world’s richest is now held by Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates, who is worth $75.6 billion.
